Former Jackal Kevin Harvey scored the lone goal in tonight's game at 10:48 of the first period. Matt Lowry moved the puck to Troy Rutkowski at the point and Rutkowski fired a shot that ended up on the stick of Harvey for his fifth of the season.

The Jackals out-shot the Icemen 38-21, but could not put one past Driedger. Tempers flared in the second period when Justin Kea dropped the gloves with Myles Bell at 9:45 of the middle frame. Less than a minute later, Guillaume Lepine caught Rob Florentino up high with an elbow and Steven Shamanski came in to defend his teammate. During the ensuing skirmish Nick Tuzzolino dropped the gloves with Matt Lowry and both players were handed game misconducts in addition to fighting majors for a secondary altercation.

The Jackals pressed in the third period and out-shot the Icemen 19-5 in the final 20 minutes but were thwarted by Driedger. Justin Daniels was awarded a penalty shot at 16:28 of the third period but wasn't able to capitalize on the opportunity.

Marotta made 20 saves on 21 shots faced but was handed the tough-luck loss and Driedger stopped all 38 shots faced for the shutout victory. The Jackals went 0-for-6 on the power-play and the Icemen were 0-for-2 with the man advantage.
